Crystal City Oktoberfest is back for its second year with a new and improved format!
Hosted by the Crystal City Business Improvement District, in partnership with New District Brewing, this year's event will feature a selection of local beers, live entertainment - including local Oompah band Alte Kumpel, and the 19th Street Band - and a variety of food trucks (powered by Curbside Kitchen) and vendors serving traditional German fare.
Thanks to New District Brewing, this year’s Oktoberfest will include custom-made beers brewed specifically for the event. In addition to the four custom brews – available only during Crystal City Oktoberfest – each participating brewery will have their most popular regular offerings available for attendees to enjoy.
Ticket holders will receive a full-sized custom mug and drink tickets redeemable for all four exclusive beers. VIP tickets will include early admission and additional drink tickets.
The four custom Crystal City Oktoberfest beers are: Oktoberfest from New District Brewing
Heffeweizen from Dynasty*
Altbier from Settle Down Easy*
Helles from Valor*
As an added incentive, we have partnered with Nift (Neighborhood Gift) to give EACH ticket purchaser a $30 Nift Gift!
*All custom beers are brewed in collaboration with New District Brewing.
